SPD February Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop


It’s time again for our monthly, Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop !  Now that you have our January 2015 Release in your hot little hands, our Pod Squad of designers have geared up to inspire you with even MORE creative possiblites featuring the newest SugarPea Designs stamps & dies.

 I made pencil Valentines
 using the new Classroom Cupids and an older set Teacher's Pet 

You can use whatever pencils you like, I used what I had on hand
I combined two sentiments, one from each set.  I aligned them up on the table face down them pressed my acrylic block and heat embossed on my panels and made them into flags and wrapped them around my pencils. Easy.  
Here I wrapped washi tape around my pencil then put a flag on it. 

 First, I just put a small piece around the pencil at the top to start with. 
 Then using the roll, I started wrapping the washi around my pencil at an angle. 
 Voila. Then I sharpened for a nice looking end. 
 To make my flag, I started with a piece of paper 1 1/4 x 6.
I made a pencil mark 1/2 in from the end and heat embossed my sentiment to line up along that line. 
 I cut a line in the middle on the end up to the line. 
 Then, I cut a line from one corner to meet with the top of my cut at the line. 
 I repeated on the other side and erased my pencil line. 
 To adhere, I used a 2" long piece of score tape.
I just wrapped it around my pencil and used my boned folder to press on up to the pencil.
